Pride Messages from our Team


Alex Barjona

You know what counseling and pride have in common? Fluidity. I take an eclectic approach to counseling that allows flexibility to choose an approach based on presenting problems then develop a treatment plan that’s specific for you. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you at Koi, where individuality and authenticity are not only welcomed, but encouraged! We are allies!


Chloe Wind

Being an ally as well as a therapist, I strive to advocate for individuals in the LGBTQIA community in my personal and professional life, in all aspects. No matter how an individual identifies or presents, my goal is always to treat and accept them with the same unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence I show every client.


Corey Riley

Pride is a time of celebration, but also a call to action. A call to our own community to continue standing up for equality, a call to our allies to rally behind us, and a call to the world to acknowledge us as fellow humans. As a therapist, I work to create a space that is both affirming and inclusive for clients of all ages. I want your identity to be celebrated during our therapeutic work! I specialize in working with children and teenagers experiencing a variety of presenting concerns. I use play therapy, walk and talk therapy, and a variety of other approaches to help clients reach their goals. I am currently accepting new clients in our Fort Mill office with some availability for our Rock Hill office or walk and talk therapy.


Laura Simpson

As an ally of the LGBTQ+ community, I am committed to offering support and therapy experiences that are affirming of all sexual and gender identities. I have seen first hand how shame and invalidation can lead to anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide a non-judgmental environment where everyone feels free to be themselves- no matter gender, race, ethnicity, or religion. I specialize in anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, life transitions, school stressors, and implementation of assertive communication. I have extensive experience with clients of all ages and populations. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which can assist in processing trauma and reduce negative reactions and emotions. I am also trained in Gottman Method, a research-based treatment for couples aimed to increase respect and affection within relationship. I take a personalized approach with an understanding that no two clients are alike. I am located full time in our Fort Mill office and am currently accepting new clients.


Shelbie Broach

One of the reasons I became a counselor was to make sure that when people seek help with their mental health they feel seen and heard, no matter who they are! After years of watching people I love and care about struggle with not being listened to, heard, or taken seriously, I decided I needed to be a part of the change. You deserve to be listened to, accepted, seen, and heard; I want to create that environment for you! You are you and that's what makes you amazing! Let's honor that and use it to help you create the changes you want in your life.
